Paint sprayers/people who've painted their own car- how?


Recommended Posts


So I have a Toyota IQ with pearl white paint (this particular car model/paint colour is known to have a defect- I don't think a primer/base coat was applied properly so every now and then, paint starts to chip/flake off various areas of my car). Due to the defect, I've paid others to fix certain areas of the car, as and when the paint starts to flake off, but as you can imagine it does get pricey and with the age of my car and value, is it really worth me keep forking out? 
The last person who painted my car gave me the left over paint (so the colour and I believe the base coat), so now I have it in my head that I could probably have a crack at it myself (probably a terrible mistake haha). Thing is, I don't really know what I'm doing, so if anyone can give me step by step instructions (and what I need to be able to do it) or point me in the direction of a video/online tutorial that can teach me somewhat, that would be great.
Thanks! 🙂
